Chesapeake fire contained, no injuries

Apr. 25, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

CHESAPEAKE, Ohio -- A fire at a two-story, frame house in downtown Chesapeake was contained to an upstairs bedroom, according to Chesapeake Fire Chief Ed Webb.

"We knocked it down in about 15 to 20 minutes," Webb said Wednesday.

While the cause currently remains undetermined, it started near a mattress in an upstairs bedroom, Webb said.

No firefighters were injured, but a resident was given oxygen for smoke inhalation. The woman wasn't transported, he said.

The bedroom sustained water, heat and smoke damage and there was some water damage in other areas of the house, he said.

The Chesapeake Volunteer Fire Department was assisted by the Proctorville Volunteer Fire Department.

The fire was reported about 1:30 p.m. along Pemberton Avenue.
